I’ve always loved the idea and style of these but I have to carry both my car’s keyfob and my work’s keyfob with me, neither of which could fit in these. So then I’d have two sets of keys, which really doesn’t solve any problem. Hopefully someday soon all my keys and wallet will live electronically on my phone and it will be a non-issue.
since you like leatherworking…a scrap of strap and a chicago screw will make one of these
i have carried a pocket knife in a sheath that covers my house key(s) in a similar arrangement for at least three decades
at the time it cost about 25 cents and 30 minutes of making
that said…i do like keysmart’s stuff
Craig, Love the custom carry sheath!
This will show my age…”back in the day” when I worked in a TV shop when I was a teenager, remote controls on tv’s had various lengths of aluminum, and when you pressed the clicker, each one would send out a “ping” at a different frequency, to make the tv change channels, volume, or on/off.
At times, you could “jingle your car keys” and get the tv to do all sorts of things. (and sometimes you could prank someone by taking the remote apart, and swap the aluminum tubes so changing channels would turn the tv off)
Rusty, So you had to have aluminum keys or it was just the sound that the key jingle made that would create the frequency?
It was just the jingle of the keys. Of the brands I repaired, Zenith, RCA weren’t too bad, but the Quasar, made by Motorola at the time, were the easiest to screw with.
I had a friend who had a TV with a remote like that, and when his dog would walk by the TV, the noise from her tags would cause similar interference. They wound up taking the dog’s harness off when she was inside!
a rural letter carrier i had coffee with said the reason my co-workers and i were so often attacked by dogs was the rattling of our tools and keys
it turned out he was right
silencing our dogs’ tags has really reduced sidewalk aggression as well
